Project-based learning in a geology classroom | Posted in Evaluation and Assessment

I am a pre-service teacher, currently student teaching in a high school geology classroom. I would like to implement more project-based learning with my students. What are some effective strategies that you have found helpful in implementing a project-based learning unit? Also, how do you incorporate collaboration and self-assessment during a project-based learning unit? Any comments or advice would be extremely helpful. Thank you! -Anna Maynard

Gardening at school with young children | Posted in Early Childhood

I love the idea of teaching gardening to young children. I have worked in preschool and every summer we made a garden and grew all sorts of vegetables. One year, I decided to make a "greenhouse" for them to grow carrots in, they were SO excited to do this. We simply got two medium clear tubs and taped them together on one end (so we could open it still), and then used toilet paper rolls and put dirt in them and then carrot seeds. The kids participated in it all and helped to water them often. When the time came we planted them outside and watched them grow (and then ate them of course). But if you worry about growing in the cold, make a greenhouse and grow whatever you want. It is a great experience for young children. Good luck!
